    Abstract

    Corporate security risk management has often been argued to be influenced by the business and environmental conditions of organisations. The debate concerning the role corporate security risk management plays as a major contributor to organisational performance has attracted numerous discussion. The unique nature of developing economies has further provided a dimension in which corporate security risk management can be understood.
    This research investigated the implementation of security risk management through the analysis of various business and economic features in developing countries. The use of a multinational organisation within a fast developing economy is focused to establish unique factors and experience in corporate security risk management implementation in these countries. The research was conducted in an international organisation with focus on how the corporate security risk management is reflected on the manner in which the organisation is managed.
    This research involved fifteen participants who work in an organisation where corporate security risk management is practiced effectively. The opinion of the participants was sought with respect to the corporate security risk management process in their organisation compared to other organisations. The participants span through eight departments with role in different parts of the organisation.
    The interview method used in this research was conducted to provide different kind of answers. The answers for this research range from being monosyllabic or expansive in nature. Respondents range from different parts of the organisation thereby providing wide ranging perspective. The use of semi structured interview provided the avenue for the conversations to be structured and managed in a way that is focused on the research.
    The study was important in discussing corporate security risk management practice in a developing economy based on unique features in such countries. It provided an insight into the corporate security risk management implementation based on the environment where the organisation is located.
